Learning, Teaching and Assessment (LTA) Approach:
Learning & Teaching methods including their alignment to LOs
A range of teaching strategies, including lectures, discussion groups and workshops, are used to further develop and consolidate the students knowledge of wound management, which align with LOs 1-5. Lectures present the main areas for study (LOs 1,2,3 &4), while discussion groups (LOs 1,2,5) enable the students to critically reflect on the evidence base for practice in wound management. The workshops use patient focused case studies (LOs 1,2,3,4,5) to encourage a holistic approach to assessment and management of patients with a variety of wounds. Tutorials provide academic support for the examinations.
The use of Moodle in this module gives greater flexibility, allowing students to engage in discussion and shared activities out with classroom contact times.

Embedding of employability/PDP/Scholarship Skills
Skills enhanced through this module include:

Information technology and online literature searching

Evaluating evidence based literature and relating findings to practice

Ability to challenge existing assumptions and practice

Work and time management


Formative Assessment:
Assessment (formative or summative)
Assessment consists of two components. The first component will test the students on LO 1 and comprises an online Multiple Choice Question examination. This component is worth 25% of the overall mark, duration will be one hour and will be conducted in week seven.

The second component is an examination which will test students on LOs 2-5. The examination duration will be two hours 10 mins and consist of two pre-seen patient based scenarios. The scenarios are issued in week seven of the module and the assessment will take place in the centrally timetable exam period in week14/15.. Students select one scenario on which they will have to answer questions, relating to the holistic management of patients. Students will be expected to utilise the literature to present evidence-based answers.
